Use this Checklist when Shopping for a Quality Off-Road Trailer

Sure, sleek lines and rugged good looks are important, but they won’t get you very far when you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere. There are a number of crucial features to consider when investing in a quality off-road trailer to ensure you get the best value for your money. You want to ensure it serves your needs well and that it’s the companion you want to turn your next trip – and each one after that – into the adventure of a lifetime.

Before you commit to an off-road trailer, ask these questions to ensure you get great quality:

  1. Does the manufacturer use durable materials?

While stainless steel is a popular choice among some manufacturers, Conqueror follows motor industry trends by using electro-galvanised steel for chassis and core body frames. Aluminium is used in the construction of doors and furniture to reduce weight, and all tents are made from coated ripstop canvas, thus avoiding nylon and other less durable materials.

  1. Are the chassis and suspension fit for purpose?

A basic requirement of a quality 4×4 trailer is the ability to handle the challenges of off-road driving. Conqueror trailers feature 2,5 ton solid beam axles with sufficient ground clearance. The chassis are hot dipped galvanised for added corrosion protection. Welding is kept to a minimum to significantly reduce metal fatigue and stress-concentrated areas, and to make component replacement easier.

  1. Is the body construction done in a smart way?

All parts of the Conqueror trailers are of a modular design, allowing for easy panel replacements in case of an accident. Assembly is done using a range of high-quality fasteners and a high-modulus polyurethane glue to reduce metal fatigue and corrosion. The parts are powder coated to provide a higher degree of resistance to scratches, chipping, wear and fade compared to other finishes.

  1. Does it provide ample storage?

When camping, you need space for all your equipment and provisions, plus you want to be able to access them easily at any time. Conqueror trailers provide plenty of practical storage space, including clothes drawers, cupboards, storage for bottles, cutlery, crockery, pots and pans, Jerry can holders, water tanks, gas bottles, and more.

  1. Does it provide camping comfort?

There is no reason why you shouldn’t experience utmost comfort when camping. Conqueror trailers come with comfortable beds and bedroom space, a fully-equipped kitchen, and even hot shower facilities.

  1. Is the setup easy?

So, all of these features are really cool, but how quickly and easily can you access them? If setting up your trailer takes hours, it’s pretty pointless. Conqueror trailers are designed to be set up in minutes, so that you can simply kick back and enjoy your getaway.

  1. What is the after-sales service like?
